Week of Dec. 25-31: The Food Network rides the Detroit bandwagon and other trends in eats; what bicycling portends for Motown; a clever video puts health and exercise in a new perspective; positive business trends for the Mitten; and why Rust Belt cities should embrace decay. Drink responsibly, New Year’s party people!

    Considering the mild Michigan winter we are having … it’s a perfect time to go check out the Detroit RiverWalk and take a bike ride down the Dequindre Cut. The ice rink is also open at Campus Martius Park! Make it a great weekend!
